The Netherlands was selected guest of honor of the 11th edition of the Agadir International Documentary Festival, which is organized by the Association for Culture and Education.
This edition, according to the association’s website, will host a delegation of professionals from the Netherlands as the country with the largest production of international documentaries and with the most important events in this field such as The Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival.
For the first time in the history of this festival, the international competition for this Forum will include three films that have benefited from the festival’s artistic follow-up program. This will enable the directors (A Moroccan, an Algerian and a Nigerian) of these three films to return to Agadir City to share their experiences with the participants from the eighth edition of this festival.
The film “The Miracle of the Little Prince” by the director Marjoleine Boonstra was selected to open the 11th edition of the festival with other artistic performances, and a masterpiece from Johan van der Velde will be presented by Peter van Hoiste.
The festival program also includes three films that are classified within the Amazigh cinema. This selection comes as an affirmation to the distinct cultural identity of Morocco as multi-cultural and multi-tribal.
As in previous sessions, this Fidadoc edition will also explore the rural areas in Souss Massa region. The festival’s cinema team plans to visit ten village groups in the region before the festival begins.
